Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Beautiful bus! I'm jealous even though I just picked up a Crown Supercoach II last week. (Bluebird would have been my choice if I hadn't found the Crown that I did.) Is that a 78 or 84 passenger configuration? How many miles are on it?

72 passenger. 190k and 6100 hrs. Pretty nice shape. Just dug up the school district that owned it prior. I chatted with the service manager there and he wanted it back...lol. He said it was a great activities bus, very nice bus.

That's a sharp looking bus, btw. Good score. Belly bins on both sides. Doors on both sides. A cool set-up. How deep are the bins? Also, what did you end up giving for it, if I may so boldly inquire?

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I'm not sure I like this idea of a cut off grinder for these seats....hmmm. With all the space taken up below, I cant get to but 4 seats to put a wrench on. Who wants a weeks vacation in MT?

Anyways......they wanted $9500, I gave them $5500. Pricey, but as I stated before, no such thing as a cheap bus around here. I would rather spend the money here than have to fly to TN and then drive back. I am well pleased.

[Its available in HD too, if you swing that way]. I had to pull the right door piston off to get inside the heater box. That is why it is hanging there.
